    David Farrar

    Kiwiblog is the personal blog of David Farrar. I set it up in July 2003 after several months of getting addicted to reading other blogs. Prior to blogging, I used to participate in Usenet Internet newsgroups, since 1996. I blog on any issue or thing I find interesting. Now this is mostly politics, but also quite a bit on technology and the Internet. And as my friends use the blog to keep track of what I am up to, there’s a fair amount of personal stuff also, photos of places I have been, food, theatre or movie reviews, or just anything I want to share.

    An Outlier Poll

    [...] Reid Research is a very good polling company. Colmar Brunton is also a very good polling company, and of course I think Curia is also. So how is it that very good companies can have divergent results?
